Flora @ Tokyo

As a well kept mega metropolitan city, Tokyo is filled with flora.

Many shops and houses planted potted plants, bonsai, or trees to beautify the living space.

It makes strolling on the city street a pleasant exercise.

This bamboo wall was inside the Kitanomaru Park near my hotel.

All these flowers and trees were not taken in the jungle but on the street and city center.

This type of blooming flowers were common scene in spring (outside someone’s house).

Some flowers facing up, some facing down.

Some on the tall branches, some are on the ground.

By looking at this picture, it is hard to imagine that this park is just besides a busy road.

I used software to turn one of the images to ‘negative film’ effect so that I can share the beauty of the branches with you.

I would time my next trip with the Sakura blossom (April), that will be really wonderful.

    I believe the name of the “unknown tiny flower” is “ギンモクセイ”…?
    By the way, what is the name of the flower below the line “some are on the ground”? I think I know it, but I can’t remember.

    I’m sorry I made a mistake. It can’t be ギンモクセイ. The leafs are small.
    It may be “ツゲ” or “イヌツゲ”. Wikipedia says it’s native to Japan. (I’m Japanese and I thought the flower looked familiar to me.)

      It could be イヌツゲ. I saw this plant at a residential area. What caught my attention was the entire plant was blossom with pleasant flowers. It made me happy just looking at it. Luckily there was no guarding dog chasing after me. – Tennyson 🙂
